I love Jim Kelly. He convinced me from viewing Enter The Dragon and Black Belt Jones that, he is one of the coolest dudes on the planet. This poor excuse of a film is a strong candidate for worst movie ever . Hot Potatoe was billed as a sequel to blaxsploitation classic Black Belt Jones . Besides the return of Kelly of the Black Belt Jones character , this bears no resemblance to the original film . Lame and unfunny across the board . Every aspect of this movie is bad. Even the fights suck, which is a shame considering Jim Kelly 's skills as martial artist and that he was in Enter The Dragon . Which is the most crucial and classic martial arts movie of all time ! His sidekick Rhino was painfully annoying . Hot Potatoe is one movie that I feel has no entertainment or artistic value at all. This is one serious bummer and one pile of crap all around.
